Montgomery won by a healthy margin on Monday, but she almost humiliated herself on a clue specifically about San Diego.
"Padres fans know this feathered trickster has been called 'the Sir Laurence Olivier of mascots. Jennifer," asked host Alex Trebek.
"What is the Chicken?" replied Montgomery.
"Be more specific," Trebek urged her.
"Oh my God, I'm from San Diego!" Montgomery cried. "What is the San Diego Chicken?"
"Good! Thank you very much!" Trebek countered. "There are many chickens out there."
You can watch Montgomery try to defend her Jeopardy! title on Tuesday night at 7:30 on NBC 7/39.
